Great documentary, pity about the music
19 August 2020 | by harper1875-230-359237See all my reviews

Brian Clough's career will always hold a lot of interest for fans of British football history, and this documentary gives us another insight into the great manager. Virtually all the players make contributions, making for a more in depth study than usual of Forest's glory years.

Like others have said, it would have been interesting to have found out more about Clough's later years but understandably the makers wanted to finish on a high rather than get bogged down with his less successful later period and sad farewell.

All in all a great documentary, just a pity that it had to be saturated with an unnecessarily incessant black soul/disco soundtrack - there were other types of music in the late seventies that would have reflected Britain much better at that time - even a bit of variety would have been nice.
